There’s one thing in particular that fans are picking up on, and it’s been spotted in the brand-new Battle Pass trailer that’s just been unveiled by Epic Games.

The trailer shows off a lot of fun stuff, including llama-riding (well, sort of) and – tomato throwing!

Yes, it looks like Fortnite is taking a leaf out of PUBG’s book and is including fruit-flinging-fun in the game. And yes, tomatoes are a fruit.

Check out the trailer below to see the feature in action, and let us know what you think!

Season six, officially named Darkness Rises, is promising a lot of exciting changes, including the addition of pets.

Epic has confirmed that to get yourself a pet you’ll need to level up your Battle Pass which will unlock critters by the names of Bonesy, Scales, and Camo.  They’re apparently “passive companions” that will “[react] to different situations you find yourself in.”

Sounds pretty good! How do you get your Battle Pass? Well Epic’s also announced that it’s available right now, costing 950 of your precious V-Bucks, but at least it’s not real money, right?

Along with adding some furry buddies into play, Battle Pass fans twill be treated to 100 levels and 100 new rewards.

Epic confirms on its blog that the new Battle Pass will instantly give you two completely exclusive outfits – Calamity and DJ Yonder.

As per usual, you’ll also get your Weekly Challenges with the Battle Pass, getting you cool rewards and allowing you to level up faster than you might otherwise. Completing these will get you some very nice – and exclusive – rewards.
